Question about 1987 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

1987 honda prelude 1.8L wont run

Will not run, if starter fluid is sprayed in carburetors then it will run, checked fuel lines and seems to have fuel in lines near carbs, fuel at rear fuel filter spills out when hose disconnected, so im thinking the problem may be somewhere else? or could it be a bad fuel pump or relay?

SOURCE: running rough, wont idle, bad gas smell

Possible injector failure. locate by disconnecting injectors one at a time. The one that makes no change is the questionable. Status of spark plugs need chkg also. pull the plugs an the one that looks washed is questionable good luck

I have a 1986 honda prelude 2 door 2.0 motor and automatic. my starter just went and i need to take the old one off to put the new one on but i took off 2 bolts am i missing a bolt that it still wont come...


If the starter has never been replaced, it is probable seized onto the transmission. Try spraying penetrating fluid, or WD40 on the area its seized on, and use a prybar to remove the starter.
I hope this helps

Where do I spray the starter fluid (air intake?) for Chrysler Silhouette. Ran out of gas and it seems carburetor needs starter fluid to kick it..not sure where air intake is locater.. or where to open carb...


there is a large tube that goes to your throttle body (you do not have a carb), remove it and spray there-be careful, starter fluid is highly explosive, spray 2 or 3 short bursts into the top of the throttle body opening, and install the tube (you don't have to tighten the clamp). You may have to repeat this a few times, if you can only get the car to run for a few seconds 3 or 4 times, and it will not run on it's own, you have a fuel delivery problem, and no amount of starter fluid is going to fix it.

1987 jeep wrangle will not start or run


Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!

Fuel wont spray inside carburetor


Try tapping the side of the carb.while some one crank's engine, the float could be stuck, if you buy a rebulit kit it will have the diagram with the kit.

Eager ****** wont start, sprayed engine starter fluid, but shuts off from lack of fuel?


first of all using starter fluid damages the cylinder head gasket. Take cap off of gas tank look for small clear line with filter on end - Is the filter submurged in fuel , or is it dirty and need replacement? make sure the filter in in the bottom of the tank. After all that, if it still does not work check all mounting fasteners and everything is tight and appears to have no leaks I would say its the carburetor diaphragm, less than 10 bucks and easily replaced.

My 1998 gen 5 honda prelude wont start. It seems like fuel is not coming from the fuel pump. Could it be the fuel pump itself, the fuel filter or maybe the fuel injectors?


could be all of the above. what you need to do is verify fuel pressure with a gauge set. or you can try a small spray of ether engine starter. if the engine starts and then stalls you know its something relating to fuel. but without a gauge its going to be impossible to determine which part

With something like anti theft I would have to contact honda and explain what is happening if you cant find anything on line. Something like the anti theft thing is very particular.
